Quilting and Photography are two of my greatest loves, and recently I have been able to put them together. One of our EQ Artists, AnneMarie Chany, brought us a few quilts to photograph.
Moccasin by AnneMarie Chany – Gen X Quilters
The first quilt, Moccasin, she called her “Fourth Child” when she dropped it off. Her design is phenomenal with quilting just as stunning. Read more about her creation process for this quilt.
We decided to go to the Wood County, OH Historical Society to take picture’s AnneMarie’s quilts. The structure that the quilt is hung on is an Oil Derrick, which was used to mine natural gas in the late 1800’s. We waited until the exact second that the wind died down to shoot this photo. Wind only stops for seconds at a time most days in windy Bowling Green, OH.

Purple Bonfire by AnneMarie Chany – Gen X Quilters
Purple Bonfire was AnneMarie’s 2016 Block of the Month. Even though it’s over now, you can still check it out!
We were chasing the shadows around the grounds of the Infirmary, and found a bench by the log cabin. I really love how the modern quilt looks in front of the old log cabin.

White Chocolatier by AnneMarie Chany – Gen X Quilters
There is old farming and blacksmithing machinery scattered across the grounds. This machine had huge wheels, which was a great way to display a large quilt.
The Historical Society was the perfect place to mirror AnneMarie’s quilts. Many of her quilts take traditional quilt block and pair them with modern colors and layouts.
White Chocolatier is AnneMarie’s 2017 Block of the Month. Learn more and follow along!

The New York Beauty Hoop by AnneMarie Chany – Gen X Quilters
This was the first Hoop Quilt that AnneMarie created. She made it with a New York Beauty block she found in EQ7.
You can read more about how she constructed this quilt here.
